Awesome Spray Chalk vs. Good Old Fashion Fun!
Well, we checked it out and our votes here at home are 50/50. Not like The Moms opinion matters on this one but we are the buyers of this company (CEO of our own households people!) so here's what I have to say about the Pros & Cons of each for all the CEO's out there...
Good Old Fashion Chalk
Get it at The Dollar Store, Walmart, Target, really anywhere; affordable, fun, may break into pieces but still good enough to last an afternoon of artsy imagination to let their minds go wild! Smaller pieces used as hopscotch rocks, crushed darker artsty areas on concrete, or what have you (your professionals know what to do!) Like crayons, they just keep collecting in a bucket and toss them when its time, but its a never ending supply because its inexpensive and fun :)
Awesome Spray Chalk
Get at Target or Amazon (I'm sure more places are picking it up but so far not easy to come by, it must be a hot trend :)!) Moms, its clean to use, (kids could care less about the cleanliness) fun & seasonal for snow or beautiful sunny days, great to mark bases for a fun game on concrete but maybe too light on grass. Not very affordable or lasting as long; 4 cans to a container, roughly $20/ box. It was light for painting on grass (do multiple coats) or great for snow unlike regular chalk, This creative art does last a little longer on the ground despite rainy days unlike regular chalk that is washed away instantly. As for the price and the amount of time my kids spent using it (maybe 30-40 minutes of fun) our cans quickly came to an end and we were done. Like a spray can when you get to the bottom of it you need to keep the can vertical to spray and not able to use horizontally to chalk on the ground.
It does dry looking chalk- like which is cool. This was a great "one time buy" or excellent for a "gift" idea (yes! my kids would LOVE it!) because I do feel the Spray Chalk is a special treat to have and nice to paint a snowman in the winter, I just feel its a little pricey. Otherwise for summer time good old fashion fun, stick with the inexpensive sidewalk chalk, it'll last a lot longer for your buck.
Either way, get down and PLAY!!! It won't be long before that driveway is filled with cars and your kids will be driving off on their own so spend the time you can with them, get out in the sunshine and share your chalk photos on THE MOMS DIET FACEBOOK PAGE this summer & thanks for reading!
